I loved, but husband disliked (hence on the fence rating) so probably won't rush to make again unless I want a virtuous solo supper.
Used haddock fillets as had them in the freezer.

Delicious! Lovely, quick med week meal. Chillis just add a kick, not hot as long as you take the seeks out.

You do not specify how much or what type of cabbage to use.

Did this all in the steamer and it was a hit with the family, lovely fresh flavours and incredibly healthy.

I tried this with Sainsbury's shredded cabbage and leeks, which I cooked in the microwave, and just wrapped the fish loosely in foil and cooked in the oven at 190C for 6 minutes. It was a great success!
